I'm guessing the pre-orders will be up until Dec. 31st, is that correct?

I guess it's a really good thing I budgeted high. At this price point, though, I won't be able to double up. I'll be getting one set though, so I guess that's better than nothing.

I have the same question, are the preorders going to be up until December 31st? Need to know how much time I have to gather the money.

Do these all come with " This item comes with a letter that it is from the Collectors' Club Archives and it will be embossed with the Hassenfeld Bros Inc. Corporate seal from 1926 (which is a cool mento itself)."?

These prices are a little steep at nearly $50 a figure. With that said, I need that Zartan so I’ll definitely be getting him.

lindy101_98@yahoo.com
11-15-2018, 06:00 AM
Yeah, these prices are higher than I was expecting. With that said, I have decided I'm only getting the 2 I was really wanting. Still debating on getting another version of Zartan with his cycle. Sorry, but I can't justify 80something for the night stalkers when the cobra troopers were 60something. Sorry club, I WANT to support you, yet with these extremely inflated prices, I just can't justify it.......

Hello Club Members!

There has been several questions that have come in and we want to address them:

1. When does the order period end?

There is no end to the order period. When we run out, that's the end. These products are supposed to ship from China in about 2 weeks and that puts them here around the first of the year. We will start shipping to you as soon as they arrive. When the figures arrive, if there is any quality left that has not been pre-ordered, they will move to an in stock status in the club store.

2. If my membership ends December 31, 2018, will there be anyone at the club to handle my orders?

The CLUB memberships all end December 31, 2018. This means your last magazine will be December 2018. We have an additional 12 months to sell and ship our remaining products to you. This will be the same process as when the Transformers Collectors' Club ended. We will announce next year what the final closing date will be for Fun Publications.

3. Why are the figures more expensive compared to past exclusives?

We understand your concerns. As all of this winds down to the end of G.I. Joe, factories are less willing to make these low production run projects, so pricing has increased drastically and we totally understand fan reactions to the prices. The carded figure pricing is the same as the last convention carded figure exclusives. We were already starting to see some of the increases then. Small production runs are expensive to make if you can even get the factory to make them. They would like the minimum orders to be 5x-10x what we typically order. The only way we have been able to make these figures at all is because of Hasbro's relationship with the factories.

We don't know the future Hasbro has in store for G.I. Joe, but if you look at the current toy market, it seems unlikely you will ever see this product again in this format. Unfortunately, it's kind of the "end of the line".

To give you a pricing comparison: on the Female Troopers from 2016 to the 2018 versions, our manufacturing costs (not including increases in shipping costs) went up 34%! We pushed back on the factory but they would not budge, particularly because we made 1/3rd less than the first set of Female Troopers. The less you run, the more each figure costs. On the Final 12, we picked a number that was in the middle of all of the prior subscription quantities since we could not do the final figures in the FSS format, due to the impending end of the contact.

We appreciate your support over all of these years and we hope your interest in G.I. Joe never fades away!

Brian

PS. After less than 24 hours, we are already 20% sold through these items.

I placed my orders last night ($715 total). The prices were quite shocking considering that that FSS figures are only, what $38 each. But I do appreciate the club's email explaining their cost increases.

I've always supported The Club. And being as these are the last new Joes until a movie, I grabbed everything.

Any news on when FSS 8 will start shipping?

That was a tough one. I only collect modern era figures (vehicles are different, I'll take what I can get) and this is going to be the last of G.I. JOE for a very VERY long time. I grabbed one of everything.

jfunk@sympatico.ca

Thank you guys! You've been such a fantastic source for all GI Joe related things for so long and I am so sad to see this go. I am extremely thrilled about FSS 8 and I think for me at least that is ending on a very very strong note. Good luck to everyone in the club on all your future projects!

So what do i do if im not getting any emails from the club I've alrwady called and let you know back with the FSS 7.0 and the October updates onthe final 12. Now here's an update on the FSS 8.0 and no email and I have 2 accounts and nothing guess its a good thing my address didn't need changing because by the time I saw this update here on the forum your deadline had expired 5hours earlier. What do I have to do to get the updates and emails from you in a timely manner or at all for that matter?

I'm looking forward to Joes. This season has been an unusually difficult one for me and my family. I'll be saving any of the stuff that arrives and opening them on Christmas day. A little gift to myself, if you will.

People have been asking "how have the pre-orders been going"? As everyone knows, the quantities are limited for each of the final items because they were not built to your orders.

So far, each item is between 30%-40% sold through. These will not last forever and these will probably be the last 3 3/4" items you ever see in this format. Don't miss out!
